Whole House Fan - my most important green upgrade to my home

Postby silver0202 » Sun Sep 28, 2014 12:01 pm

I installed a Whole House Fan in my home to reduce the time I need to run my air conditioning. I recently posted a youtube video on my system to show how it works. A Whole House Fan can be used as an A/C alternative whenever the outside temperature is lower than your inside temperature. It blows the existing air into the attic and draws cooler fresh air through a window into your home.

My Whole House Fan run on a fraction of electricity compared to my A/C. I have a price comparison chart in the video.

If you have questions about Whole House Fans, how much they save you on your electricity bill or install please take a look at my video...
thx, Boogi

I still wonder just how effective they would be, in Australia, in summer, when the air outside is hot for most all of the day.. ie it does not really cool in the evening

I would like to draw the air from under the floor, where it is noticeably cooler, but I do worrie about DAMP caused fungi spore that does grow there..
